“This book, part narrative, part graphic novel, should be read by everyone from middle school to adult! Kurlansky, a former commercial fisherman, is the author of the very popular non-fiction books Cod and Salt. He knows the ocean and speaks for all species, including humans, as he appeals to all of us to know where the fish on our plate come from. He weaves ecology, evolution, human history, as well as human folly, together in a format that is both accessible and compelling.”
— Dianne Patrick, Snowbound Books, Marquette, MI
